John has been involved in the musical We Will Rock You though... Not as heavily as Brian and Roger, but he has approved of it.

Ah...now THAT I didnt mind. That was a celebration of the life of the band, and their wonderful music. I saw it in London when it was first out, and loved it.

I enjoyed it a lot really. I wouldnt go and see any of the other ones like Rod Stewarts or Abba's. This was an exception. And it wasnt at all bad.

Queen should hire Sammy Hagar to sing...then in a few years when that doesn't work out replace him with Gary Cherone, then when that tanks they could re-enlist Sammy after a failed reunion attempt with Freddie's corpse.

(Actually Cherone would seem a better vocal fit than Paul Rodgers, but what do I know)

Ugh, this is shit. Queen WAS Freddie Mercury. I consider Freddie to be a better singer than Bono, and that's saying something. You just cannot replace one of the best vocalists that ever lived. I don't know if they're doing it for the money or what, but it is seriously a load of shit.

I love Queen, yet I'm really questioning this decision. It would be like U2 replacing Bono. I honestly hope no one goes to see them on this tour.

I'm with the 'No Queen without Freddie' crowd

I saw Queen 3 times in concert and they were fantastic. Probably the first band that I really fell in love with...

I need to go look at my old concert programs now.

I'd like to clarify something up though.

By saying that Queen can't go on without Freddie I don't mean that the remaining three members aren't talented. They are massively talented (just read the credits on the CD's; each of them plays a couple of other instruments and Roger and Brian do wicked backing vocals and sometimes even lead vocals) but without the enormous force that was Freddie Mercury it really isn't Queen anymore.

A frontman that phenomenal is irreplaceable.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Brian May is an incredible musician and should continue making music but Freddie Mecury was larger than life and simply can't be replaced.

Continue on as the Brian May Band or something as someone suggested but not as Queen.

I would fear for the Rod Stewart musical too. But the Abba one (Mamma Mia!) was great! Saw it about three months ago (the Dutch version) and was pleasantly surprised. Great songs, good fit with the storyline. Only the ending was a bit too much slapstick...

Still, I can recommend it if you like Abba songs (a bit).

I'm not too keen on this either, but I am very interested to see where this will be going...
I disagree. I think his voice, while not as powerful and without the range of Freddie's, isn't horrible. His voice seems so fragile on songs like "Love Of My Life", that it's hard to not feel the emotion in his voice. He is no match for Freddie on rockers like "Hammer To Fall", but I think he's far from awful....

I also like Brian May's vocals! Specially on I Want It All. Yeah, he's defenitly not Freddie but I think he can handle some songs. I read somewhere that his solo records were pretty good.
